I've been spending a lot of time in Memphis with the Blueshift Ensemble (and with Porcellino's insane chicken biscuits). And next week, I'll be back for the first annual Crosstown Continuum Festival! On Saturday, August 5, Blueshift will be premiering Buddha Body, a three-movement expansion of last year's Dharmakaya. I'm also doing arrangements for a special Blueshift-accompanied set by brilliant songwriter and rapper Don Lifted - who will be creating visuals for the entire evening.

Next year, I'll be writing my first string quartet for new-music phenoms Mivos Quartet as part of ICEBERG New Music's second season. And there's more to come - stay tuned!
